DEBRIS is an entirely new mini-series coming from Image Comics and Shadowline. In a dystopian future, the Earth has gone on the offense against the humans as ancient spirits called the Colossals.
These Colossals take physical forms from debris to declare war against the destructive species, meaning the humans.
The story follows Maya, a warrior proclaimed champion of humankind, as she sets out to find the last source of pure water. Having of course to fight Colossals along the way so that she can save her fellow humans.
DEBRIS was created by Kurtis J. Wiebe (Peter Panzerfaust, Grim Leaper) and Riley Rossmo (Rebel Blood, Cowboy Ninja Viking). “I’m very fond of Scandinavian and European folklore, so I injected a lot of those concepts into the monsters that will appear throughout the series,” Wiebe told Comic Book Resources in an April 25th interview. “It’s also very influenced by Native American (Canadian) mythology and even a touch of Mayan for some of the creatures. I like the idea that all these ancient monsters were once part of our world and have returned to end us when we are at our weakest.”
With a look inspired by video games like Final Fantasy, DEBRIS boasts extraordinary creature design by Rossmo and vivid colors by Owen Gieni (Avengelyne) that set the comic apart from many other post-apocalyptic visions of Earth.
You can expect the first issue of DEBRIS out on shelves this July 25th. It is also up for preorder right now from the May issue of PREVIEWS using the code MAY120516.
